Journey to Japan
February 09, 2011
"Konnichiwa" and "Kite kurete arigato" were the words of the day last Monday when 17 tweens arrived at the Grandview Branch. In their program Journey to Japan, they perfected their origami folding, practiced with chopsticks, and made (and ate) candy sushi.
The candy sushi was a big hit! Jessica D., Grandview's expert on all things tween, says making candy sushi is super easy! Take crisped rice cereal treats and form them into a round with any chewy candy (like Mike and Ike's) in the center. Then, wrap the round piece with a fruit roll up (our tweens used fruit by the foot). If you search online for candy sushi, you should be able to find several different versions.
Activities for tweens at the Grandview Branch are offered the 2nd and last Monday afternoon of the month at 4:30pm. Programs offered are geared to 8 to 12 year olds and upcoming programs include Mystery Night, Cartooning for Kids, and Mummy Madness. We are looking forward to your tween joining in on all the fun!
